Mike Nock-Stephen Magnusson-Julien Wilson (Sydney/Melbourne)
Sun 4th March @ 8:30 pm - 11:00 pm$20 - $25
At 77, Sydney-based pianist/composer Mike Nock is simply a legend of Australasian jazz, with an international profile based on a 25-year career in the U.S.A.. The recipient of the 2009 ‘Bell’ Australian Jazz Awards ‘Hall of Fame’ award, he is not one to rest on his laurels.
One example is this bass-less and drummer-less project with two acclaimed Melbourne musicians: tenor saxophonist Julien Wilson and guitarist Steve Magnusson (respective recipients of the 1993 and 2000 National Jazz Awards).
With Nock on piano and keyboards, the trio produced memorable concerts of spontaneous and creative music making as part of the 2013 Wangaratta Festival, and earned critical acclaim for their 2014 Sydney concert, and 2016 MRC performance.
